Silvery Tweed sows seeds for further growth

Silvery Tweed sows seeds for further growth

2 Jun 2015

Silvery Tweed Cereals is investing more than £1,500,000 in capacity-boosting plant and equipment to help service its growing food processing and bakery sector client base.

The funding, which was partly provided through a Regional Growth Fund grant, enables Silvery Tweed Cereals to purchase new machinery and automate processes where the latest technology offers scope for improved efficiency and capacity. It will also create 10 new jobs at the company.

Silvery Tweed Cereals is one of the longest established family businesses in the food manufacturing industry, with the Gladstone family maintaining their ownership and management consistently throughout its 172 years in business. Today the company processes raw grains at its 40,000 sq ft factory – most of which come from a 40-mile radius in the Scottish Borders – into cereal ingredients, as well as cleaning and blending seeds, for supply into cereal and bakery products.

Managing director Bob Gladstone said: “Our latest investment will help us keep our growth plans on track and ensure we stay at the top of our game when it comes to the efficiency of our processes. Importantly, as we continue to secure new and extended contracts for the supply of ingredients into the bakery and cereal sectors, we will also increase capacity. For example, new equipment will automate grain cleaning and processing of raw materials which will mean we can handle 30% more product per hour and therefore increase the overall volume of product we can process in any given day.”

Silvery Tweed’s latest investment follows a similar programme of plant and equipment upgrading in 2012-2013 which has already automated key processes. The benefits of the extra capacity this delivered are already been reaped.
